Asha for Education: Help for Balavidhyalaya

Hi! We are the Minnesota Chapter of Asha for Education. Asha’s volunteer team supports projects that bring education and learning to underprivileged children in India. Asha is the 6th highest ranked Charity on Charity Navigator, so you know we’ll make your donations count!

This fundraiser is for the Balavidhyalaya School for Hearing-impaired, in Chennai, India - a school that Asha Minnesota supports and funds. Balavidyalaya is a free school for young hearing impaired children (from birth to 5 years). It is a private early intervention center and preschool preparing hearing impaired children for mainstream education. Teachers train very young children to acquire language and speech skills. Balavidyalaya’s teaching allows for children with hearing and speech disabilities to have the same opportunities as other children. 

Your donation will help fund various critical functions for this school:

COVID-19 relief efforts when the school resumes operations
Learning material - including books, school supplies, and teaching aids
Teacher’s salaries

Help us reach our funding goals for the project in this difficult year. THANK YOU!
